Yes, so from what I've seen, the Sandbox fully supports reading and writing searches based off Name and DOB. And I can pull related data for the patient that we're interested in, including allergies.
In regards to the workflow...
- Right now, I have it functioning that we're creating Encounters and Observations (only a particular type I've tested with), then pushing those back to Cerner. In this case, for a Woundcare workflow.
- The alternative option, if Encounters are already made in Cerner for Wound care, might be that we want to pull an existing encounter from Cerner, and tie the observations to that already existing Cerner Encounter.
Do you know if the former or the latter is the more preferred approach? I'm particularly asking with concern of resource scope for Cerner to use it in charting, if that is available for WoundCare in something like PowerChart (would love confirmation on this being possible as well, and if there's any notes I need to take for our customers to help them plan build if needed).
Besides above, are there any particular Observation Types Cerner uses that I should include to make sure they are tied to Cerner's Woundcare charting?
Many thanks for all your help!
